Despite the corona pandemic, numerous English clubs are hitting the transfer market for expensive money this summer. The previous expenditures could increase again properly in the coming days. 90min provides an overview of the latest transfer rumors that involve upcoming transfers.
Due to his horrific annual salary, Gareth Bale has so far been considered non-transferable – especially in the current transfer window, in which numerous clubs want to invest less money than usual due to the Corona crisis.
After agent Jonathan Barnett had announced some time ago that Bale would also spend the coming season at Real Madrid, a return to Tottenham Hotspur is now apparently on the way. At the Spurs, Bale had developed into a world-class player before moving to Real Madrid in 2013 for the then record sum of 101 million euros.
“Gareth still loves the Spurs,” Barnett told BBC Sport Wales (Translation via Spox). There are negotiations about a transfer, said the 70-year-old, who emphasized: “Bale would like to play there.”
Spurs coach José Mourinho did not want to comment on Bale before the away game against Southampton FC – although he reported that he would have liked to work with the Welshman at Real. “But that wasn’t possible,” said Mourinho (quoted via kicker). “But the president [Florentino Perez, Anm.] followed my instinct and knowledge and got it the year I left. It’s not a secret. Even Gareth knows that. “
Sergio Reguilon is another player on Real Madrid’s streak – and Tottenham could also strike the 23-year-old left-back. Like the Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano Twitter reports, Real is said to have accepted an offer of 30 million euros. This is also what the Spanish newspaper reports ASwho also wants to know that the rumored transfer fee can rise to up to 35 million euros thanks to bonus payments. Likewise, the royal has secured a buyback option between 40 and 45 million euros, which can be activated by 2022.
Reguilon comes from the Los Blancos’ junior academy and spent the past season at Sevilla FC. For the Spanish international, Real should have secured a matching right in addition to the buyback option. According to this clause, Real must be informed of every offer the Spurs receive for Reguilon. If the club then bids the same amount, it will automatically be awarded the contract.
Leicester City is apparently facing the signing of Cengiz Ünder. The British reported Guardian. Accordingly, the Turkish winger player should be loaned for one year from AS Roma and then firmly committed. The rental fee is 3 million euros, and a transfer fee of 24 million euros has been agreed for the purchase obligation.
Ünder moved from Basaksehir to Roma three years ago for around 14 million euros. In 70 Serie A games, the right-winger scored 13 goals and prepared 8 more goals.
From 2013 to 2017, Bertrand Traoré was under contract with Chelsea, then the winger said goodbye to his home country and moved to Olympique Lyon. Now he is about to return to the Premier League, like the French L’Équipe reported.
Accordingly, Aston Villa wants to sign the 25-year-old. There is a transfer fee of over 18 million euros. Villa has already invested almost 64 million euros in the transfer market and is associated with Milot Rashica, among others. The next promising player could be signed with Traoré.
Chelsea coach Frank Lampard is not really convinced of Kepa, which is why the Blues will do something in the goalkeeping position this summer. With a rumored transfer fee of 25 million euros, the upcoming transfer of Edouard Mendy is not a big financial undertaking compared to the previous Chelsea deals in recent weeks.
The deal is nearing completion, according to consistent reports, and Mendy could become Chelsea goalkeeper after just two years in Ligue 1 with 28.
